Heart of Travel, in collaboration with Voices from the Lake, is thrilled to be hosting a unique retreat and cultural immersion experience for artists, musicians, and creatives from around the world. This week-long trip includes an all-access pass to the Voices from the Lake Electronic Music Festival on the shores of Lake Atitlán where you will enjoy music, art, and human connection for two whole days.
Once the festival has wrapped up, we will dive into a dynamic retreat-style trip that balances creativity, wellness, and cultural immersion - giving you time to soak in Guatemalan culture while also honing your own craft and collaborating with others' creatives.
Together, we will enjoy meditation, yoga, studio recording sessions, visits to local cooperatives and meet and greets with artists, artisans, and changemakers from around the country. Lake Atitlán is not only physically beautiful but it's considered by many to have a special energy and we couldn't agree more. It's truly a magnetic destination that inspires healing, connection, and creativity.
We invite anyone ready for a transformational travel experience to join us on this life-changing adventure!

The festival actively supports different NGOs, entrepreneurs, and artists that are changing the landscape in the country. Voices from the Lake is a unique opportunity to connect with the impact sector in Guatemala and also take part in helping the arts ecosystem develop its great potential. All of this while you dance for 2 days with more than 30 DJs and visual artists in a span of 4 stages set in one of the lake’s most idyllic spaces, the Atitlán Nature Reserve.
